Hey everyone. I'm new here and new to linux completely. I've been looking into 3 main distros of Linux for a secondary OS; PPC-Fedora, Yellow Dog Linux, Ubuntu. I was wondering if any of these are confirmed being able to run on an eMac 1.25 Ghz. I know the YDL site states that it doesn't guarantee to work due to video issues. Any insight would be helpful.

I have no eMac but a Mac Mini G4. From my experiences the PPC version of Ubuntu Linux runs quite well. I tried YDL 4.1 once but the graphical installer was not working at all.
